Self Clinching Fasteners

Self Clinching Fasteners are used in a variety of industrial and electronic applications, and are available in a variety of finishes and sizes. Clinch fasteners have strong threads that can attach in metal as thin as .008″/0.20mm. They provide a strong grip and torque-out resistance, and eliminate the need for extra parts such as washers and nuts so the shorter assembly time means lower costs. With greater holding power and reusability than sheet metal screws, Captive fasteners can be installed during fabrication or during final assembly to eliminate loose hardware.
